Conservation and Community

As a company, Brett Horley Safaris strives to make a positive impact through our tourism ventures by contributing to creating economic independence for local communities, ensuring that they benefit from our tourism enterprises.  Our focus is on buffer zone communities – integrating those people living on the boundaries of wildlife reserves. Socio-cultural sustainability involves promoting authentic cultural exchange and preserving local traditions, whilst encouraging community members to see tourism in a positive light – an opportunity to start their own businesses to service tourists, allowing adults to feel a sense of self-respect, pride and ownership through income generation.

Our Communities

From our base in Hoedspruit, Brett Horley Safaris supports the development of youngsters from buffer zone communities to follow careers in conservation, hospitality and tourism.  Through education, these young members of the community can become economically active and environmentally responsible citizens of Africa, eliminating the need to poach, reducing the impact of human encroachment, and understanding the impact of habitat loss on biodiversity.

Our Conservation

We are committed to protecting Africa’s remaining parks and reserves, and to preserving the wilderness habitats that wildlife populations call home, and need in order to survive. Rampant wildlife poaching, human encroachment, and habitat loss are the three greatest threats to species survival – when an ecosystem has been dramatically altered or destroyed – usually by human activity – it may no longer be able to provide the fundamentals for species to survive.  The preservation of Africa’s remaining wilderness areas including grasslands, woodlands, jungles and wetlands is crucial to preserve the biodiversity of plant and animal life in each habitat.
